    A SERIOUS Question for Gun Control Proponents

    Do you support an "assault weapons ban"? What constitutes an assault weapon to you. An AR-15? A Glock 17? Do you know the functional difference between a semiautomatic rifle and a semi automatic pistol? What is your reason for wanting to ban one or both of these weapons?

    I see a lot of rhetoric. I have seen intelligent debate in this forum, so i know it can happen. Let's see it happen now.

    Bushmaster AR-15


    VS.

    Glock 17

    Do you own either of those Mo? You donít have to disclose if you donít want to.

    I am sure you already were aware of this, but the people wanting to ban these things possess very little to no knowledge about firearms, their knowledge on this subject would make Todd Akin look like an expert in the field of womenís reproduction.

    I cannot say for sure why everyone is so locked in on the AR/AK platform, especially if you were looking at it logically, why would you want to ban the class of weapons that seem to kill the least in the US? Your guess is as good as mine.

    Here is a little trivia that i'm pretty sure is true, as far as I know, there is only one of our firearms that was so deadly that one of our enemies campaigned to have outlawed during WWI, anyone want to guess which firearm?




    Hint, as far as I know the AR platform is certainly not in that class, nor was it around back then.

    On the other hand, those bombs might have saved millions of lives.

    Because the threat of being ABLE to use deadly force makes people understand there will be consequences. Which is EXACTLY the reason that every time a pro gun laws are passed crime rates drop, and every time anti gun laws are passed crime rates rise.

    Bumpus is 100% correct.

    As far as I know, the only time one of our adversaries went as far as trying to get one of our firearms outlawed, it was Germany during WWI and it was over the Winchester 1897 pump action "trench gun".

    Our military used to use this shotgun to clear trenches, and it was incredibly effective. They would line up, 5 or 6 in a row with the first one just blasting away. As soon as that soldier was out of ammo, he would crouch down and bolt to the back of the line to reload, with the next in line taking over.

    So the same basic weapon my Governor talks about having (pump action shotgun) as he outlaws all of the "really dangerous weapons" in my state...makes sense i guess?

    For the record, I don't have a Bushmaster, but I do have an AR15 that I put together from a mixture of different parts, you can go on youtube to see the procedure, but you still have to buy a receiver.

    I also have the smaller version of that Glock, a 19, great gun.

    Asfar as I know, they work the same, and they have similar capacity too, the pistol just shoots a larger bullet at a lower velocity.
